Having a 529 college savings account under the name of a student who is not the applicant cannot hurt your applicant's chances for receiving the maximum financial aid he/she is eligible for. When you are filling out the FAFSA and/or CSS Profile, you will NOT be required to include the 529 as income regarding your current student if he/she is not named on the 529 account.
